The maintenance of an inversion polymorphism in Coelopa frigida
Butlin, Roger Kenneth (1983) The maintenance of an inversion polymorphism in Coelopa frigida. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The seaweed fly, Coelopa frigida, lives in piles of rotting seaweed deposited on beaches by tides and winds. In all populations studied it is polymorphic for two gene arrangements on Chromosome I. A polymorphism at the alcohol dehydrogenase locus is strongly associated with this inversion and can be used to estimate karyotype frequencies.
